It is built on a high and sheer land facing a small and enthralling beach (called Santa Croce) which opens itself at the foot of sheer rocky walls which seem to plunge into the sea. It is a beach made up of fine gravels and enclosed amidst rocky surface rich in sea life living in crystal waters. It is a paradise for snorkel diving enthusiasts.

The Campania region
If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.
The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.
If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.
Amalfi, situated at the mouth of the Valley of the Mills, with its characteristic groups of houses clinging to the rocks, overlooks the sea. It is a maze of narrow alleyways comprised of archways, portals and ancient towers that stand guard over the town.
The origin of the town date back to the IV century. During late medieval times Amalfi became an independent maritime republic, rich and opulent due to intense trade and cultural exchanges with the Arab and Byzantine world. The city was renowned for its trade and diplomatic relations throughout the Mediterranean, Flavio Gioia’s invention and development of the marine compass and the “Amalfitan Tables” - the first maritime legal code. It was also during this time that mills of Amalfi began to produce paper rather than parchment. The paper was used for all the official acts and documents of the Court of the Duchy of Naples. The particular variety of Amalfitan lemon “the Sfusato Amalfitano” crossed the borders of Europe, and was exported throughout the world.
The architectural and artistic values of its monuments and historical buildings, the indescribable beauty of its landscapes, its folklore and traditions have made, and still make, Amalfi a place without comparison, so much so that it has been said: “For an Amalfitan the day he goes to heaven is just like any other day”.
